Many parents and schools struggle to find time to fully support their children's physical and mental well-being. By placing creative needs at the heart of their transformation we equip children of all ages with proven easy to follow, simple ideas and practical insights. This empowers positive behavioural change, supporting them to build confidence and develop an independent healthy future.
Primary School Debating Society
Sid presents The Little Debate in partnership with Chiltern Learning Trust
A FREE National Primary School debating society helping little learners to discuss the big issues. Addressing hard-hitting topics such as black history or homelessness and softer important topics such as school rules or well-being. The Little Debate is a safe online platform and structure which supports the attainment of Ofsted inspection framework outcomes such as cultural capital. Additional curriculum benefits support language, critical thinking and early good old-fashioned debate. It's a chance to hear the little voices at the centre of our big concerns.

"Brilliant! Amazing! The pupils were mesmerised"
Lea Manor High School
We use creative performance at the heart of what we do to combine performance and imagination with proven strategies that facilitate positive individual outcomes. Empowering healthy behavioural change, we create opportunities for pupils to be part of an intensive transformation programme offering more than the normal school day allows. We also use solution-focused thinking, which includes growth-mindset strategies to either intervene with or accelerate through the impact of a well-being practice. Using a series of one-to-one and or group sessions, pupils gain an understanding of how to use this process to explore real-life personal challenges and situations, providing tools to build a resourceful and resilient future.
We can also improve your school's well-being practices by developing teachers to become effective mental health and well-being mentors.
HM Government report states (2016): "Ofsted already evaluates a school’s success in promoting and supporting pupils’ knowledge of how to keep themselves healthy, including through exercising and healthy eating. Inspectors expect to see pupils making informed choices about eating and physical activity and the school’s culture promoting this aspect of pupils’ welfare. This evaluation informs inspectors’ judgement on pupils’ personal development, behaviour and welfare."
A DfE research report on 'the impact of pupil behaviour and wellbeing on educational outcomes’ (2012) states that ‘Children with higher levels of emotional, behavioural, social and school well-being on average have higher levels of academic achievement and are more engaged in school, both concurrently and in later years’.
